7% of Dogs Are on Facebook. Shine from YAHOO!
We've seen dogs get reunited with their owners thanks to Facebook and cats tweeting about their playtime -- so it should come as no surprise that the number of pets "using" social media has soared over the past year.
According to a new study by pet insurer Petplan, there's been a 36% increase in the number of pet owners creating Facebook and Twitter accounts for their animals in the last 12 months. Facebook is the more popular destination, with 7% of dogs on the site, compared to 4% of cats.
